Full Title: Community Outreach III – A Summary Report by the Student Health Coalition–Appalachian Project: June 1971 – June 1972
The 1972 annual report for the Student Health Coalition, an organization developed at Vanderbilt University in 1969 to reach out to medically underserved communities in upper East Tennessee, West Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, and Southwest Virginia, and to join with local leaders with the goal of building a network of primary care clinics and bringing health services to Appalachian regions lacking reliable access to health care.
The Student Health Coalition Annual Reports summarize the goals, outcomes and activities for each summer’s health fairs and special projects. Some reports include rosters of volunteers and participants, as well as lists and descriptions of the towns served by the students. These were digitized from original volumes held at The Eskind Biomedical Library, Vanderbilt University.
